PAW Patrol Live! Race to the Rescue to tour to Newcastle Entertainment Centre in May

Beloved characters from Nickelodeon's hit animated television show PAW Patrol will adventure to Newcastle this month.

The three show Newcastle tour will bring everybody's favourite pups to the stage for an action-packed, high-energy musical adventure that sees them embark on a rescue mission when Mayor Goodway goes missing the day of the Great Adventure Bay Race.

The show engages audiences with Bunraku puppetry, an innovative costuming approach that brings the PAW Patrol characters to life on stage, along with their vehicles and packs.

A high-tech LED video wall visually transports audiences to Adventure Bay.

On stage, the characters use their unique skills and teamwork to teach kids of all ages social and problem-solving skills.

"After such a challenging year for theatrical shows worldwide, we are thrilled that our heroic pups will be returning to stages across Australia in 2021," said Thomas Kingsley, director of Nickelodeon Experience.

"PAW Patrol Live! will once again deliver a memorable family experience, as audiences work together to help Ryder and his team of pups save the day."

The show runs for one hour and 20 minutes - which includes two acts and an interval - and features up-tempo music and a clever script that provides children a great introduction to live theatre.

PAW Patrol Live! Race to the Rescue will show at Newcastle Entertainment Centre at 10am and 1pm on Saturday, May 29 and 10am on Sunday, May 30.

Tickets, on sale now through Ticketek, start at $29.90 and go up to $59.90 for premium seating.

PAW Patrol Live! returns to Australia following its sold out inaugural tour in 2017 and cancellation in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Port Stephens Examiner has three family passes (each containing four tickets) to give away to the Newcastle show.
